BEETHOVEN 33 Variations in C on a Waltz by Anton Diabelli Op.120

It is quite surprising to discover that a composition that is considered by such eminent authorities as Alfred Brendel and Hans von Bülow to be one of the greatest ever achievements in solo piano writing should have been created from an inconsequential piece of music that was once dismissed by Beethoven himself as a ‘cobbler’s patch’. From such unpromising material Beethoven crafted a magisterial work of just under an hour’s duration that embraces humour, allusion and parody, while maintaining an extraordinary coherence across the whole of its ambitious structure.

For those who enjoy a true pianistic ‘tour de force’, and also for everyone who enjoyedTim Horton’s complete Beethoven piano sonata cycle, this is a concert that is not to be missed.

Running time: About 1 hour (no interval)
